Practice and Research is an overview of Professor Ian Shaw's analysis of the complexity and challenges of the practice/research relationship in social work - a theme that has been the focus of much of his writing over his career. Introduced with a new essay that reflects on the 'serendipity, misfires and occasional patterns' in his work, the book is grouped into five sections. It covers the following themes, each of which is fully contextualized: ¢ Perspectives on Social Work Research ¢ Evaluation ¢ Qualitative Social Work Research ¢ Practice and Research ¢ The Receiving End: Service Users and Research This book has much to say about the relationship between social work practice and research and is a must-read for any social work student or practitioner.
